The scarcity of signings provided much of the post-match debate following United’s 1-0 defeat at Liverpool last Sunday but Fellaini, who had Old Trafford on his mind before United made their decisive move, is confident of achieving success with his new club. After helping Belgium to a 2-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Scotland at Hampden on Friday night, Fellaini turned his attention back to United. “It is a big step for me,” he said. “But I have played five years in England, I know the league and I know the players so I don’t think I will have a problem with this move. “Of course I look forward to it, I am playing with big players so I need to work hard for my place. “To win a trophy with Manchester United and play a lot of games, that is important. “I watched the game (against Liverpool) and in the second half the team played very well and had a lot of chances but couldn’t score, but football is like this. “It will be tough, every year is tough for the big teams but I think Manchester United has the quality to win the championship so I look forward to this.” Fellaini, set to make his United debut against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford next Saturday, recalled a “great week” for him which ended with Belgium taking a massive step towards the World Cup finals in Brazil next summer. Press Association The 25-year-old Belgian midfielder’s move from Everton to be reunited with former Goodison Park boss David Moyes was completed late on Monday night. United’s new manager had been linked with several players including Toffees left-back Leighton Baines, Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera and Real Madrid’s Fabio Coentrao, but his summer-long efforts ended with Fellaini being his only high-profile recruit. “When I started the campaign with Everton I looked forward to the transfer so in the end I was happy,” he said. “I was a little bit nervous on Monday but in the end I have my transfer and I have won with Belgium so I am happy. “It wasn’t my best game but we won and it was a good game for us. “We scored the first half and dominated the game and that was important.” Asked light-heartedly if there might be repercussion from Glaswegian Moyes, who watched from the Hampden stand as Scotland ended the evening at the bottom of Group A, Fellaini smiled and said: “I don’t think so.” Marouane Fellaini was “nervous” as transfer deadline day arrived but insists he has joined a Manchester United team that is set up to retain the Barclays Premier League title.
Docherty was manager of the Red Devils between 1972 and 1977 when Busby was in the boardroom after guiding United to great successes as boss, including the 1968 European Cup final win over Benfica at Wembley. It is argued, however, that Busby’s presence ‘upstairs’ stifled Docherty’s predecessors, Wilf McGuinness and Frank O’Farrell, and the former Scotland boss admits things were difficult for him, notwithstanding the relegation to the former Second Division before he got the club promoted back to the top-flight. However, the 85-year-old Docherty, speaking at Hampden Park on Monday – 24 hours after being inducted into Scottish Football’s Hall of Fame, claimed there is no harm in Moyes using Ferguson’s expertise if it is on his terms. “It is nice to have Sir Alex there,” he told Press Association Sport. “If David says ‘I want to see Sir Alex, because it is my choice not his, there is a lot of knowledge and advice there, why not pick it if it is good information?’ (then that’s fine). “But when I was there with Busby, the old players who, without being disrespectful, were past their sell-buy date, used to by-pass me and go and speak to Busby and that’s where a lot of the trouble can start. “I don’t know if Alex still has an office there but if he is there as an ambassador (as well) and if David wants to go to him – well, it is nice to have your neighbour next door. “If need be go and see him, and if not, carry on doing what he is doing. “The biggest danger is following Fergie. His record is mind-boggling. No one will ever match that. Former Manchester United manager Tommy Docherty believes David Moyes need not necessarily have any worries about the spectre of Sir Alex Ferguson hanging over him at Old Trafford. Press Association “It is an impossible task to win the honours he has won. “He might do a great job but will that be enough? That is a question you have to answer. “But David Moyes is a great choice, he was my choice as well. He did a great job at Everton with not a lot of money or great players. He did really, really well and I hope he does well again.” Docherty explained his admiration for Moyes but acknowledged that every Manchester United manager has an advantage over many of his counterparts. “I just looked at his record at Everton,” said the man who managed 13 different clubs. “If you have money and you need to go into the market, you don’t buy a ‘could be’ or ‘a maybe’ or ‘a might be’, you are buying a sure thing. “It is a club that every young boy wants to play for. The biggest problem I had was getting players to leave Manchester United. “You had no problem getting them coming in. But they didn’t want to leave, that was the biggest problem.” Much has been made of Ferguson’s move on to the United board following his retirement as the club’s most successful boss last season and how that might affect his successor and a fellow Scot. Parallels have been drawn between that dynamic and that of ‘The Doc’ and another massive figure in United’s history, Sir Matt Busby.
Press Association In the aftermath of Chelsea’s Champions League exit to Paris St Germain, former Liverpool manager and current Sky Sports pundit Souness was highly critical of them, referring to some of Chelsea’s actions as “pathetic”. He continued his complaints, with Mourinho responding in a press conference on Friday, calling the Scot a “frustrated man”. Using his hands to gesture, Mourinho raised his left hand above his head to illustrate Souness’ high level as a player and whacked his left on a low desk to signify his own career. When it came to management, the Portuguese’s right hand was raised high and his left, for Souness’ management career, wavered just above the desk. Mourinho said: ”The difference between me and Souness is this – Souness as a player, up there. Jose Mourinho as a player, down here. Jose Mourinho as a manager, up here. Souness as a manager, down there. ”With another difference: I was not a frustrated man because I was not a top player. He is clearly a frustrated man.” But writing in the Sunday Times, Souness was sticking to his guns. “He had his say about me at his press conference on Friday and he is entitled to his opinion, but it won’t change mine,” he said. “When he reflects on what went wrong against PSG and addresses it , I hope – yet doubt – that will include the obsession with gamesmanship. “It seemed more important to Chelsea than getting on the ball and taking on PSG in a game of football, which they were more than capable of winning. They are a far better team than they showed. Getting the opposition booked by their excessive reaction to fouls became their priority. I was angered and saddened by that approach.” Meanwhile, Blues midfielder Nemanja Matic has spoken about his sending off for pushing Burnley’s Ashley Barnes. Matic served a two-match ban – which included the Capital One Cup Final – for his reaction to a challenge from the Burnley striker which Mourinho referred to a “criminal”. Speaking to a number of national newspapers, Matic said: “Of course my reaction was not good but this reaction was because I thought that I break a leg. I am a happy man because I can walk.” Graeme Souness will not be changing his opinion of Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, despite criticism from the Portuguese coach.

They seek immediate payment for hundreds of thousands of Floridians.The lawsuit also cites the long wait times workers have faced filing for benefits during the pandemic.“The system was designed to fail, the website in and of itself was intentionally made to be confusing, not user friendly, unnecessarily redundant, a deterrent to just getting people to submit an application much less get approved,” said attorney Gautier Kitchen.Plaintiff Showalter, said she tried call about 50 times a day but would get disconnected, according to the lawsuit. She was able to get her claim around April 11, but still has not received any further information or money, the lawsuit says.Plaintiff Walls, was unable to contact anyone at the DEO for 31 days to file for unemployment benefits.“Plaintiffs, and all others similarly situated numbering in the thousands, were unable to obtain access to the unemployment system to apply for benefits and even after gaining said access, were diverted to another site or have been unable to obtain RA/unemployment compensation benefits rightfully due to them,” the lawsuit states.The lawsuit also claims that the governor is “ultimately responsible for ensuring that the unemployment compensation system in the State of Florida works and is accessible to citizens.”The law firm is seeking emergency relief for the plaintiffs, and for others were also affected.To read the full lawsuit click here.
